Directed, produced and acted by Nawal Khadka, the movie ‘Kandetaar’ will be released on the day of Mahashivaratri this year. Actor Khadka has announced the release date of the film on the 25th of Falgun through a poster on the occasion of his birthday on Sunday. Nawal chose that date as the 25th is a public holiday of Shivratri and also falls on a Friday.
Last Baisakh, the Censor Board objected to some of the scenes and dialogues of the film and did not give a pass certificate for screening. The Censor Board gave the certificate after Nawal, who raised this issue in the media for a few days, removed the objectionable dialogues and scenes. Director Khadka says that the film raises the issue of installing barbed wire on the Nepal-India border.
